It’s the 163rd annual boat race between Oxford University and Cambridge University.
The race takes place close to Easter each year on the River Thames in West London, between Putney and Mortlake.
The first race took place in 1829 in Henley on Thames following a challenge between old school friends, Charles Wordsworth and Charles Merrevile.
Since the second race in 1836, the contest has taken place in London.
The women’s race gets under way at 4.35pm and the men’s race follows along the same route an hour later at 5.35pm.
The prestigious event will be broadcast live on BBC One, with coverage and build-up beginning from 4pm on Sunday afternoon.
